While Mariah Carey was ringing in her first Valentine’s Day as a newly-single lady (aka reclining atop a pile of 2,094 cotton candy-stuffed Build-A-Bears wearing custom Swarovski crystal-studded butterfly wings as a life-size Hello Kitty hand-feeds her cherry crèmes from a 500 piece Whitman’s Sampler) Page Six says her ex Nick Cannon was wining and dining Michael Strahan’s former fiancée Nicole Murphy.
After having dinner with friends earlier in the week, a source says that Nick and Nicole showed up at Tavern on the Green for dinner at 11pm and were pretty much the only people in the place. They also brought some extra-stinky cheese to the meal; the same source says they spent most of their meal holding hands across the table and “gazing at each other”.
And because God has a sense of humor, the source adds that a Mimi song came on while they were eating, but they didn’t pay much attention to it. Rude! Everyone knows that when a Mimi song comes on, you drop whatever you’re doing and you lip synch the hell out of it with your eyes closed and your middle finger pressed against your right ear while your left hand frantically swats away a bunch of invisible fairies.
I’m not sure how I feel about this pairing. The Miss Cleo in me thinks it’s a bad idea, because there’s all kinds of spooky letter juju going on with their names: Nick, Nicole, their exes are Mariah and Michael. Not to mention that I think I read something about this in the Do Not Dos section of the Gold Digger’s Handbook. Like, ‘Do not do another gold digger’ or something like that. Then again, I would love to see what it’s like when two former wallet humpers go on a date. I bet they weren’t actually “gazing” at each other; they were just staring impatiently while waiting for the other one to reach for the check.
